TAG! I'm it!!!

EMZ  tagged me with these questions today: A running edition of "tag".   First if you are reading this and you are not following her, you must become a follower TODAY!  You will not be bored I guarantee it!!

OK now the questions

What are you most proud of accomplishing in 2010?
That I became a runner
and that I went from left to right loosing 70 lbs along the way:



Running goals for 2011?
Easy: To run my first half marathon on January 23rd 2011.  The goals are to finish and to not die.  I am optimistic and I think I will achieve both!



My favorite race?
I made a video answering that question for a Runners World-Hood to Coast contest. (do you have your tickets?)  Now you will all know what I sound like ..and that clearly English is not my first language!!!

****I just got this!!! "Congratulations! Your video has been selected as a runner up in the “BEST RACE EVER” video competition by Runner’s World and Run All Night Productions, LLC"****




Favorite Holiday Guilty Pleasure?
Hmmm Well it used to be good food but now that I cannot eat any of it....this one is hard to answer...I think it will be to take full advantage of many  some free babysitting hours from my parents and go spend a few dollars at the movies!!

 
Most embarrassing running moment?
At my 4th race I did my best time for 5k and I almost puke on the guy who was trying to remove the time chip...I kept telling him give me a minute please...and he was just freaking out about the chip like I was going to take it and run away with it...and when he saw that I was not kidding he stood up and cleared the way...just in time!!! :)


Now the fun part who to  tag...

Miss New Marathoner Julie
The never boring Kovas
Our Distant Dreamers fabulous leader Abbi

Nothing to report on the running front, today is rest day.
